Three rugby teams will be selected by Coach Bothner today to play in the spring vacation against the New York Rugby Club and possibly the French Sporting Club. The encounter with the New York aggregation will take place on the afternoon of Saturday, April 2, at the polo grounds in the city. A final date has not yet been set for the contest with the French team, which was to have been played here last Saturday and had to be postponed.
The New York club possesses one of the strongest fifteens which Harvard will have to face during the season, and last year took the Eastern championship. The French ruggers, on the other hand, have already been nosed out by Princeton, 5 to 4. Harvard in this first display of its mettle hopes to show that it is at least the equal of last year's team.
Seven men who are expected to show up particularly well for the Harvard fifteen are: A. D. Cadman '35, who played at Harrow, England; L. G. C. Balsan 1G.B., an experienced French player; Stanton Whitney, Jr. '34, substitute quarterback on this year's football team and member of last season's fifteen; A. W. Sherman '34; I. B. Hardy '33, football tackle; John Megaw sL, an English player; and Captain P. S. deQ. Cabot, who captained the New Zealand University team.
Four other games have been planned for the season, all on Saturdays. On April 16 the team will play Princeton here.
